Building Bridges to Careers is a nonprofit organization that helps area students and the community THRIVE and FLOURISH. We very much want our students to be successful and our community to prosper.

Our funding and support comes from a variety of sources which includes grants, partnerships, sponsorships, donations, and income through memberships. Sponsorships and donations are used to support the programs that directly impact students and support the creation and expansion of small businesses. The Marietta Community Foundation currently acts as our fiscal agent.

  • Help fund a BB2C program! The programs of BB2C all provide various ways of connecting students to community networks that will increase their opportunities. We have convenient tiered sponsorship levels that you can choose from, which each provide recognition through the display of logos.

  • Increase student access to the Epicenter and the Makerspace! Our main mission is to support students in their journey of finding and obtaining a career for themselves. Meaningful personal experiences are the #1 reason students cite for making career decisions, and you can help provide those meaningful personal experiences through Epicenter field trips and Makerspace memberships.

  • Sponsor a room in the BB2C Epicenter! The Epicenter houses Marietta’s first small business incubator and community Makerspace, as well as the offices of the Building Bridges to Careers staff. There are multiple room naming opportunities at our location.
